Jean Campbell started this petition to IN High School Athletics Assoc. ishaa.org and

Make helmets mandatory for girls lacrosse in Indiana.  Any sport that uses a small hard ball, some type of metal stick being waved around and close contact with other players should mandate helments!  In girls lacrosse there can be unintentional contact with a stick by aother player.  Our daughter suffered a concussion (Brain Injury) after being struck in the head by a lacrosse stick from a player trying to block her from taking a "free shot". No Coach or Referee even saw her get hit due to the many girls converging on her to block her shot.  It was our daughter who ran off the field on her own. Knowing that was not normal we went over to her. She said she was feeling dizzy and sick.  We immediately took her to the Emergency Room and they confirmed a concussion.  (Brain injury) Not only was she done with the season but couldn't attend games to show her support. For 6 weeks she couldn't overstimulte her brain, that meant not taking notes, reading  or taking tests at school. No electronics (TV, computer...) and no physical or musical activity (she also plays the Cello). Thankfully her teachers were very understanding and went above and beyond to help her keep up and take her exams. She missed her class trip to an amusement park as well.  Making Helmets mandatory would not only help keep players safer but it would also make players who choose to wear them currently feel more comfortable on the field (not be the odd one(s) out.) Unfortunatly our daughter is not the only player who has suffered a concussion due to playing lacrosse.  Help protect our daughters!!
